Abstract

Children, as patients in dental office, behave in different ways so every doctor of dental medicine should know the child’s emotional, mental and physical development. In pediatric dentistry, the psychological moment is the most important aspect of the work. The physician must be professionally deft and emotionally engaged, because he works with a very sensitive and emotionally vulnerable patient who cannot perceive the doctor as a person who wants to help him. Emotional and physical development of children is divided into infancy, young preschool, preschool, school age and adolescence. Each of these life phases is characterized by specific children behavior in the dental office and requires a special approach. To facilitate the identification of types of children behavior in the dental office we use Frankl scale and Wright behavior categories.
